A lot of the food on the menu was pricy and had spices. I ended up getting a kids meal, which wasn't bad. Up beat environment, good service. Probably won't go back, not much option, spicier food, and a bit pricy.

I’ve waited to post as I wanted to judge based on several trips since the new brewmaster started. It’s just not as good. And a bartender - the brewmasters husband - likes to take cheap shots at the old brewmaster. Very unprofessional. Guess we’ll drive...More

Stopped in on a snowmobile weekend up North with friends. Huge screen tv watching football then heard a great band. Sampled homemade brews and other cocktails. The brewery is very cozy and beautiful. Prices are a little high and only sell their own brew.

Thanks for taking the time for a brief review Thomas. We hope you all enjoyed your weekend up north. We're praying for some more snow to keep those trails ridable through the rest of 2018's season. Cheers, and thanks again!

The food was good but the place smelt kind of bad. I think it was a terrible smell which made the want of appetite go down. It was okay experience. Our waiter was great and on top of things as well.

Service was slow due to a Christmas party upstairs. paid $9 for a glass of wine that was not a full serving. Prime rib was excellent, but for $23, it should have included a bread,as well as soup or salad

Minocqua Brewing is always full of surprises. Amazing Bloody Mary's, great craft beers, and wonderful soups. A lot of old favorites prepared in a new way like Bison Chili. Service has been great all 5 or 6 times I have been there over the years.

The outdoor patio is not outside. It is room on a deck that is enclosed with windows to look out over the lake. I would say no to dogs.

Nestled in the heart of Northern Wisconsin’s lake country, the Minocqua Brewing Company is housed in an historic landmark building located on the island city’s north shore. Built in 1927 as a Masonic Temple, the building was transformed into a micro brewery and restaurant seventy years later. The brewery houses a seven and a half barrel system producing seven kinds of ales and lagers. The bar features a fine selection of wines, and cocktails, along with the skillfully crafted signature beer selections. The brewery's restaurant offers an interesting assortment of appetizers, sandwiches, soups, and salads with a gourmet twist.
